"The Internet of Things" (IOT) is a concept, connecting all of your everyday network enabled devices such as phones, washing machines, coffee machines, TV's etc. and creates a network, which is then able to feed the user back with useful information, aiming to make life easier.
So you might ask yourself how does "The Internet of Things" impact me?
Well, looking at the broader picture, this concept can change an individual's working patterns by providing information as to when is one most or least productive.
Hence if you know that you are most productive during certain hours of the day, you can isolate your activities and patterns then so that you can identify how to make your remaining working hours as productive as those.
IBM releases quantum computing.
Indeed the chip giant has established in New York a research laboratory with a five-qubit quantum computer accessible from the cloud platform to the masses.
It is the first time that a quantum computer is available to others. That allows developing the research beyond research centres and universities through this experience called IBM Quantum Experience.
Currently the development seems to be not fully completed but users can already run algorithms and experiments by working with their own qubits.
Individuals can now explore new things with quantum computing.
(MS16-023 Security patch)
Important news for all the windows 10 users:
The tech giant's is working on a future update regarding Microsoft Internet Explorer. On a previous statement the company stated that this security update resolves internal vulnerabilities when using Explorer. In most severe cases Microsoft further stated that third party individuals can have access to internal remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted webpage using Internet Explorer. The company pointed out that hackers who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same administrator rights as the current user therefore having full control over the affected device.
As the security risks are very high hackers could have access to some OS function such as install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
We like to point out that this security update is critical for all internet explorer users (Internet Explorer 9 (IE 9), & Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) on affected Windows clients, and Moderate for Internet Explorer 9 (IE 9), Internet Explorer 10 (IE 10), and Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) on affected Windows servers.
